Murphy’s Three Homes

August 10, 2009

murphyI know there is some demand for books about/for foster kids in our district, so I wanted to point out this new title that may get lost in the picture books area.  Murphy’s Three Homes: a Story for Children in Foster Care, tells a foster care story through a puppy who lives in several different places before he finds just the right fit.  At the end of the book, there is a note for caregivers on how to use the book.

  1. One of those printed lists (like for the Newberry and Caldecott and YA …) for Foster/Adoption would be good, I’d think. If you do one, be sure to put The Great Gilly Hopkins on it.
